Elcox online distance learning combines free reading materials, AV lectures, and online one-to-one tuition for a learning experience similar to study at the University of Oxford.
You will be able to choose an assignment from a list of topics and receive relevant reading materials, AV Lectures, and customised guidelines drawn up by your private tutor.
A distance learning assignment requires close attention to the reading and AV lectures, and a written essay to demonstrate your use of English and grasp of the subject matter.
During an online one-to-one tutorial, your tutor will assess your work for use of English and philosophical content, and exchange ideas and information on the issues you examined.
Philosophy is relevant in the workplace, where critical reasoning and analytical rigour can provide balance to policy making, trouble-shooting, project management, and teamwork.
These skills are valued in manufacturing, marketing, advertising, media production, journalism, IT, the professions, education, sport, and government administration.
Philosophy scrutinises the beliefs we hold about ourselves, our society, and the world, in an effort to seek answers concerning the limits to knowledge, the purpose of things, exercise of free will, choice of moral values, the possibility of democratic government, our duty to posterity, whether we are ultimately selfish, and how mind and body interact.
